OIB friend Michele Mount (MCAT) is challenging Republican State Representative DebraLee Hovey who’s answering questions about improvements to her Monroe house. Don’t ya just love suburban cat fights? From Bill Bittar, Monroe Patch:
Less than a week before Election Day, an incumbent Monroe state representative is defending herself against claims that she failed to get proper approvals for work done on her home.
Town building officials confirmed with Patch that an anonymous caller this week alleged that state Rep. DebraLee Hovey (R-112th) sectioned a finished basement into three rooms and added a bathroom, and did so without permits or a new assessment.
Hovey said it’s an unfinished basement.
The field card for Hovey’s one-story ranch at 296 Fan Hill Road says the house has two bedrooms and one bathroom.
